The sleeves are not finished or trimmed. Neither is the bodice. There is no collar and there are no lace appliqués. So this is NOT finished. But it’s pretty. And it’s progress.

This is a sleeve press/board. Which is how you press sleeves. In this case, I am pressing the bottom half of a set of pagoda sleeves. Pretty proud of how well the seams match up. Now to make the top half. And the under sleeves.

When I said I wanted a challenge, this is what I meant- matching up as much of the plaid as possible at every seam. It’s not perfect, but it’s close. It’s slower, but this is exacting work. And I love that. (PSA- if you have a knock off designer bag, it’s obvious to those who know how they are made. None of the print/logos will match at the seams. And it’s a dead giveaway 😘) #CostumeMaking #CostumeDesign #Sewing #Work #ILikeIt #Details #MatchingSeams #PlaidPlanning #Ballgown #Plaid #GiantSkirt #Seams #PrettySeams #GoodThingILoveGeometry #Math #MathWorks #DressMaking #Design #Sewing #Draping #VictorianStyle #MakeStuff #19thC #19thCentury #Design #Costume #Gown #Petticoat #Crinoline #ICanDoThat #DressHistory

Day 35~My Favorite tool~ Well it’s more of a machine than a tool, but I can’t sew without it! I love my serger. It makes my insides just as pretty as my outsides! 😍 @tabithasewer @faithstjules
Thank you so much for creating and hosting #coloruscreative @tabithasewer. I had a blast connecting with all the amazing people that participated. I can’t wait to get my duffle bag that I won week 2 from @sproutpatterns!

Well, I missed yesterday’s #igquiltfest prompt, but luckily I have a tip today that covers both!
.
.
Nesting and spinning seams is my favorite secret skill. I call it secret because the pretty little pinwheels on the back of quilt get buried in the middle, but it is the reason that I don’t use a single pin for piecing my patchwork quilts together (#timesaver). Seams are nested by pressing to opposite sides in neighboring rows- the seam has a little bolt of bulk that you can use to butt seams together and get perfect corners. Spinning seams helps the bulk in the corners lay flat! .
.
I posted a little tutorial about this on the blog last year, which I’ve linked to in my bio if you’re interested in reading more!

There's a difference between pride and bragging, right? It makes us proud to create a beautiful roll hem where before there was something created in a rush, probably in a factory that just isn't as nice.

#sewphotohop Day 10: Mistakes. I mess up quite a bit in sewing, but that's to my trusty seam ripper it usually never sees the light of day. Any pieces that turned out terribly are promptly donated to charity shops, so I don't have anything particularly hideous to show. This picture is more me trying to use up all my scraps of binding at the same time. Because four completely different colours on the same dress is completely acceptable... #sew #sewing #isew #instasew #instasewing #sewpinup #sewretro #sewvintage #sewist #sewists #sewistsofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #sewcialist #sewcialists #dressmaking #handmade #homemade #selfmade #madebyme #memade #memadeeveryday #diy #diyfashion #diyretro #diyvintage #handmadewardrobe #biasbinding #prettyseams #seamstress
